That's one of my all-time favorite movies.


It was written by Paul Simon and originally recorded as an acoustic folk song;


I really like this done acoustically. It's interesting that the album that included the original version of the song, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., was a commercial failure. In spite of that, this song received airplay, prompting the remix and release as a single.

Paul Simon also recorded a solo acoustic version in England in June of 1965.

I think it's a little more haunting.

The lyrics could have several interpretations, but apparently they talk about the difficulty of people to communicate and love each other.

"The Sound Of Silence" is the song by which Simon & Garfunkel started to be popular. It was written by Paul Simon and originally recorded as an acoustic folk song; but after the inclusion of rock instruments it was released as a single in September 1965, becoming a great hit: #1 in US (certified as a gold record) and #9 in UK. The lyrics could have several interpretations, but apparently they talk about the difficulty of people to communicate and love each other. This is certainly one of the best examples of early and successful folk rock.

Guantanamera

Guantanamera, guajira, Guantanamera

Yo soy un hombre sincero,
de donde crece la palma,
y antes de morirme quiero,
echar mis versos del alma.

Mi verso es de un verde claro,
y de un carmín encendido,
mi verso es un ciervo herido,
que busca del monte amparo.

Con los pobres de la tierra,
quiero yo mi suerte echar,
el arroyo de la sierra,
me complace más que el mar.

Yo vengo de todas partes,
y hacia todas partes voy
arte soy entre las artes
en los montes, monte soy.

Yo sé los nombres extraños
de las yerbas y las flores,
y de mortales engaños,
y de sublimes dolores.

Yo he visto en las noche oscura
llover sobre mi cabeza
los rayos de lumbre pura
de la divina belleza.

Alas nacer vi en los hombros
de las mujeres hermosas,
y salir de los escombros,
se volando, las mariposas.


  Jose Martí, 1891

We're under an official winter storm warning until this Wednesday night. We got about 6 or so inches last night and roads were sheets of ice.  May I have the beautiful autumn weather back, please?  ;D

Btw, I seem to recall that the REAL Bill Harry used to comment from time to time under his actual name. I wonder how he's doing?

That's correct, Bill Harry used to post here once in a while. We are FB-friends as well, but he isn't online there either a lot. I believe his wife, Virginia, is having problems with her health, but I'm not sure. That could be a reason for his absence. Some other members from the Beatles somewhat more inner circle used to be here as well.
